Pixar UP Wish

Pixar grants girl’s dying wish to see ‘Up’

Pixar's Up

Pixar proves that they are not just a great animation studio, but also a bunch of great people.

They recently flew an employee to Huntington Beach California to grant a girl’s dying wish to be able to see ‘Up‘, their most recent movie. Colby Curtin, 10 years old, was suffering from a rare kind of cancer and could not watch the movie in theaters with her parents.

A concerned family friend made a cold-call at the Pixar studios, hoping to reach anyone who could help grant Colby’s wish. And grant it they did. They sent an employee with the movie in a DVD and gave the girl and her parents a private home viewing. The employee also gave her a few movie memorabilia and an adventure book.

Colby died, seven hours later. But it wasn’t in vain— she enjoyed her anticipated movie with her parents during her last few moments.
